    I agree with Whomp.
    Cutler's got a lot of talent, but he's not been put in a good situation this year, and now his play has become erratic (partly because he has less quality around him as he had in Denver, and partly because his decisionmaking hasn't been very good this year).

    But seriously, if you put a quarterback on a line that puts Orlando Pace, at this stage of his career, in a position where he has to protect the QB's blind side, the QB is going to be in trouble. But besides Pace, the entire O-line hasn't played very well for Chicago (not even Kreutz).
    And the targets Cutler has aren't all that great either. The only ones he seems to really trust is are Olsen and Forte (and Forte is strictly a dump-off option (who can make a play with his legs). The receivers, besides some flashes from the rookie Knox, have been very disappointing so far.

    And let's not forget, the great Chicago defense is not exactly helping Cutler out here. Their play has seriously declined, and Cutler just about has make the offense score 30 to win games...

    Cutler has one more win than Craig Krenzel

    And Campell throws a clutch interception, I give up. God wants the saints to win this one.

    Jesus, this game is playing out so similar to how I thought it would, it's scary.

    I think we can beat San Diego though, they just gave up 20 to Cleveland :lol:

    edit: I think Tony Romo willed this team to 24 points on his own. The defense, special teams, running game, and offensive line were pretty piss poor today.

    We basically HAVE to beat Washington, and one of New Orleans/San Diego. Hopefully Philly has wrapped up the division and their seed by the last week so we can have a free win. Green Bay is likely to win 10 games and has the tiebreaker, and NY is likely to win 10 as well though their road is a little tougher than Green Bay's.

    :undecide:

    Hey, watch it, the Browns managed to put up 23 points not just 20. They should have had more if BQ didn't fumble the ball inside San Diego's ten on the Browns third drive of the game AND didn't miss that field goal on the second drive.

    That was mind blowing. Although the Brees interception turned touchdown for the Saints was close.

    Dissappointed that the vikings lost. Hope they can beat the Bengals next week. Peterson had a really bad game

    So did Favre. Both picks were horrible missed reads.
    And now Henderson is out for the season with a broken leg. Very bad week for the Vikings, I think. Losing the game is disappointing, but losing Henderson could really prove to be costly.


    Maybe now the press can stop all the hype about Peterson being the best running back in the NFL, 'cause newsflash: Adrian Peterson is NOT the best running back in the NFL. :rolleyes:

    By the time they realize Chris Johnson is the best RB in the league, it'll be someone else. The media is always late to the bandwagons.

    There is not much to say about the Redskins loss.

    I mean, that game was so weird. I'm not surprised the Redskins blew it because they have managed to do so for several weeks in a row. And 23 yard field goals. Good gracious.

    Well, the Steelers are officially toast. From the radio call, it sounded like they mailed this one in.

    It's becoming increasingly obvious that Troy Polamalu is the key to everything their famed Defense does, because without him they are but a very, very ordinary defense...

    I think Pittsburgh is going quietly into the night.
